Sony’s much-anticipated VENICE, its next-generation CineAlta motion picture camera, begins shipping to customers in February.
As previously announced, version 1.0 features in VENICE will include support for Full-Frame 24x36mm recording. Now, continuing its approach of incorporating customer feedback into the camera’s development, Sony is announcing several new capabilities including a “Dual Base ISO” mode. With 15+ stops of exposure latitude, VENICE will support an additional High Base ISO of 2500 utilising the sensor’s unique physical attributes. This takes advantage of Sony's unique sensor for superb low light performance with exceptional dynamic range - from 6 stops over to 9 stops under 18% middle gray.
